Series description

"The Traveller's Library [sic.] series name was used first by Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans (London, UK) for their Traveller's Library series from about 1850-1862. The series consisted of reprints of books on, not surprisingly, travel.

"In 1926, Jonathan Cape reused the name for a series of titles drawn primarily from their back catalog with a general focus on travel and international authors. In 1927 the series began to be published in the US by Jonathan Cape & Harrison Smith. In 1928 William Heinemann Ltd joined Cape to co-publish the series, adding new titles from Heinemann’s back catalog. Cape issued 218 titles in the initial series and an additional 7 titles as part of the New Travellers' Library (in 1950). A few titles, such as e.e. cummings The Enormous Room, were only published by Cape and Smith in the US. Heinemann also issued unique titles as part of the series. The Travellers' Library is an interesting example of a global collaboration between three publishers issuing titles in one similarly designed and formatted reprint series."
